Applied once before surgery in 06 and then again in Oct 08 - and just now found out that I was denied. It basically said in the letter that I was still capable of "less demanding" work and I should seek out another job opportunity. I had 21 screws and 2 rods placed in the spine and have trouble sitting in a chair for extended periods of time, trouble with standing for long periods of time and have not been authorized for lifting over 2 gal of milk. Can anyone tell me or suggest a job that would work with these limitations? I am not in a wheelchair but do have problems keeping my balance, etc. and still use a cane from time to time. Does anyone think that I should appeal the decision and get a lawyer or would that be wasting my time? They said in the letter that they "understand my discomfort", I think that these people are out of line in this decision but I am not sure what to do next. Anyone else had this happen and did you go back to work or fight them?
